Over the past years, Wagenborg has built up an excellent reputation in the energy sector - from traditional coal-fired power stations and nuclear power stations to more sustainable energy types, such as wind energy or biomass.
In many cases heavy and oversized components for those facilities need to be transported to their destination, subject to complex regulations. By road, by rail and by sea. This is often a demanding and challenging project, and we always opt for the safest and most efficient solutions for transport and assembly on site, in order to keep downtime as short as possible. With our comprehensive knowledge, experience and wide range of our own equipment, Wagenborg is able to find a suitable solution for any logistics challenge in the energy sector.
Expert in wind energy
Wagenborg is an expert when it comes to logistics support to the wind-energy sector. There are not many companies with such a complete range of specialised logistics services dedicated to the wind-energy sector, and that produces a proven track record. With 3,500 employees, 230 vessels - including multipurpose vessels and tugs - heavy hoisting work and transport solutions, 400 lorries, 1,800m of quay and 390,000m2 of storage space, we have all the facilities for an integrated solution in house.
Our logistics hub in Eemshaven, near many offshore wind parks under development, offers opportunities to the wind-energy sector. Our quay with its massive storage space is extremely suitable for loading, unloading and transhipping wind-turbine components. Our facilities are fully equipped for the pre-assembly of the components that are delivered off the coast by our own vessels that transport wind-turbine blades all over the world. We also offer facilities for the repair and maintenance of wind-turbine components - always safe, efficient and reliable.
Experience with power stations
Increasingly stringent emission standards often require modification of the existing power stations, which involves transporting and positioning heavy units. This is often extremely complicated and accurate work that has to be carried out as efficiently as possible to keep downtime to a minimum. Because of our experience, knowledge and equipment this work is grist to Wagenborg's mill. During the past few years we have transported and positioned many transformers, power trains, boilers and cooling units within Europe. Always safe and always on schedule.
